Hey guys!

Glad to announce the release of my first two winter Wulfs, Fw-190A-3s of Rudolf Busch and Herbert Wehnelt. Both were of JG51, Busch commander of I Gruppe, and Wehnelt Staffelkapitan of 7 staffel.

And, also, a WIP, Hannes Trautloft's famous winter A-4. Pictures I've seen of it show it to be pretty beat up, so I've tried to show that(without going overboard). What do ya think eh?

It's done, but I'll release it when I release the non-capture version, sometime this week, gotta check and make sure my template still works for the Channel Front 190s!

Here goes a bit of 'ego stroking' (only joking http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif).

Blooming marvellous mate http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif, just love historical skins. Where did you get your sources from? Profile, original photo or physical description?

Chris,

Thanks for the ego stroke! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Actually, I get my sources from all of the above http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif The two JG 51 birds are both from profiles. Trautloft's 190 I have one picture of that aicraft, a number of profiles, as well as other aircraft from the group to compare it too. The captured bird, I have found 2 profiles for it, as well as a couple of pictures.

Another thing I rely on a bit is standardization. I've seen pictures of six differnt aircraft from 1./JG 54 in their winter coats, and based off that, I've "made up" my own font for JG 54 190s from that period. Also, spinners are another thing. All 1 Staffel pics have a 2 toned spinner, all 2 Staffel pics have a solid white spinner, and profiles seem to show 3 Staffel with black spinners. Probably not 100% correct, but I haven't seen references for it that show otherwise. Again, I've seen pictures that disagree with profiles, so I take profiles with grain of salt unless there is a photo that backs it up(which it doesn't seem like there ever is)http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif This is the reason some of my skins will differ slightly from profiles. Note, this is all just for the very early winter 190s of JG 54, not their later birds, where I have seen pics that show various fonts etc.

Anyways, we'll see if it works, hehe.
